Campaign 2016 Results

The Central London Mediocre team returns victorious from Campaign, making up for their horrible run last year!

Dave and I took first place in our periods as well!

Was good to see a few new players, especially Izzy who is just 12 getting her first 25-0!

I didn't take many photos as the games were on a tight schedule (3 hours each) plus a quick turn around between games. 

It was fun to get the 25mm figures on the table and stomp around.  The tight ECW theme did allow for several variations on each army, so, you never really knew what you were going to face.

Game 4,

Paul's Parliamentarians advance across the table.

 Game 5, Chris's Royalists advance.

Chris owns one of the Cigar Battle Box cloths so, we used that as well.  It gives the table quite a nice look and takes away from the usual dull green or carpet sheets we usually use.  Very temping to buy......

Campaign 2016

We are off to Campaign 2016 this weekend.

Tim, Dave A and I are back as Central London Mediocre and I'll be in the 25mm period this time.

Lets see if I can do better than last year.....

here are the periods

he usual current restrictions on Artillery (1 gun per 6 infantry BG bases; no fire into flank zones on deployment) and superior/average troop mix (No more superior/elite bases than average/poor for both Foot and Horse BG's) will apply.

Period 1:25mm 700pts - The English English Civil War (1641-1646) : - Early ECW Royalist, ECW Parliamentarian, Later ECW Royalist, New Model Army.
• 40mm MUs for Movement, Command Distances and Shooting, 
• 1 inch MUs for Terrain, Deployment and Threatened Flank Sectors

Period 2: 15mm 800pts - Armies, Allies and enemies of France 1485-1529 – Maximillian Imperial, Trastamara Spanish, Italian States, Italian Wars Venetian, Italian Wars French, Early Henrician English, Scottish, Swiss.

Period 3: 15mm 800pts – The Battle for India 1500 – 1625: - Muslim Indian, Hindu Indian (except Sinhalese), Rajputs, Mughal, Colonial Portuguese with compulsory Hindu Allies (3 BG's minimum). (i) All lists must feature at least 1BG of Elephants 

The runners and riders have been posted.  I'm a bit surprised by the other choices in the 25mm period, maybe I didn't choose the right army....
